Foreshore Youth Precinct
Busselton Foreshore Youth Precinct
In 2016 the Busselton Youth Precinct and Skate Park was officially opened to the local community. This great youth and family focused facility is the jewel in the crown of the Youth and Community Activities Precinct east of the Busselton Jetty. The facility was co-funded by the City of Busselton and Lotterywest and designed by CONVIC with significant community input.
Busselton Skate Park
The new Busselton Skate Park offers a host of challenges including one of the largest bowls in Western Australia. At 18m long, 10m wide and 3m deep, this massive bowl is suitable for competitions. Those still learning to skate / BMX can utilise the smaller bowl which is 1.2m deep.
The park also has close to 90 metres of free-flow street skating space with a series of elements like kerbing, parking block ledges, skate rails and a smaller quarter pipe. In all the new Busselton Skate Park offers 2000m2 of recreational space geared especially for young people.
Youth and Community Activities Building
Construction of the Youth and Community Activities Building is earmarked to commence mid-2016, however this is dependent on funding. The City hopes to secure $2.8million through a Lotterywest grant and is currently waiting on an announcement.
A great deal of consultation has been undertaken with key stakeholders including the Busselton Surf Life Saving Club who will utilise the building. Concept and preliminary designs have been developed incorporating the needs of the Busselton Surf Life Saving Club which include specialised storage, first-aid, training and office space.
